and welcome to The Scientific Friend! We hope you are enjoying your stay. This blog is run by graphic designer Christina Lauer and academic researcher Stephan Pless. While living and working across the globe we kept stumbling upon reads, ideas and products we thought should be shared in a place that celebrates life in science.

With The Scientific Friend we are aiming to create a site that brightens the day of researchers from around the world. We hope you keep coming back to check our latest notes on work life, product, science communication, books and movies. We also design simple fun products which you can buy in our Zazzle shop.

We are always looking for people to contribute to our endeavour so if you have an idea for a blog post or a product design, make sure to send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you!
